Supernaturalism and threats to reason | Synapses
Supernaturalism and religion create a climate of unreason, where we are allowed to hold unchallenged beliefs that may not prove advantageous to our survival or flourishing. It does so by allowing individuals to believe propositions that are not supported by evidence, or ones that are supported only by "evidence" provided by theoretical paradigms that are themselves supernaturalistic.
